Skyrim, the RP (OOC)

Hey guys! It's Berny, back from the dead again! To herald my return to HC, I've decided to set up yet another one of my infamous RPs! I decided that instead of creating an entirely new world, I thought that why don't we have one set in Skyrim? So here it is guys, in pure awesome RP form!



This RP will take place just before the events of the return of Alduin and the Dovahkiin, but right after Jarl Ulfric murders the High King of Skyrim. The Civil War hasn't officially started yet, but its effects of splitting the province in half has taken hold. The Thalmor and the Imperial Legion have arrived in Skyrim, the Falmer are planning to rise up from their underground kingdom, and the Forsworn are taking the opportunity to dramatically increase their aggression in light of recent events.

This probably will not be 100% true to Elder Scrolls lore, but...let's try! Meaning that everyone in the game has to have been alive in our RP too. So no killing all of the Thalmor early. I know. What a disappointment. On the bright side, some parts of the RP can take place outside of the actual province of Skyrim, but let's try to keep it there, since we don't actually know all too much about the other provinces with the exception of Cyrodiil and Vvardenfell (and Mournhold to an extent). However, the scale of how big the cities and wilderness are will be dramatically increased in the game, as well as the amount of people there. Also, let's please not get too technical by adhering to the game too much (like with the whole leveling system and being able to carry a ridiculous amount of loot) and please don't mod the RP with lightsabers or anything. Let's try to keep it as canonical and Skyrimically realistic as possible. If you have any questions, just message me.

If you've never played Skyrim before or anything, then go and play it. Don't even bother reading the rest of this. Just go. Play it. Then come back. Thank you.

Anyways, here's how to start.
You make a character sheet, such as this one here, who shall be my main adventuring character that you guys will likely hang around with most. Don't reveal things in here that you can reveal in the RP like background story etc. Show them in the RP to encourage more verbal interaction between characters.

Name: Drystan Vercingetorix
Race: Looks like an elf
Age: Looks like he is in his prime
Appearance: Rather tall for most elves, being about as tall as most Altmer. He is lean and muscular. Is rather light skinned, and has blonde hair. Has no tattoos. Eye color is violet. No facial hair. He primarily wears black hardened leather armor with some metal armor and a black wolf hide cloak. He has a black leather hood that conceals most of his face.
Weaponry: A weathered old bow with a quiver of steel arrows, two silver daggers, and a steel claymore.
Miscellaneous: Drystan also wears a belt upon which is attached a bag of septims, an apothecary bag, several potions, and an old book. Wears a scratched and weathered silver medallion on his neck. Has a scar across his chest.

You can use any of the races that are in skyrim. If you want to be something else (like Dremora) you have to ask me in a message.

I'm expecting a good turnout for this guys, so please join and advertise if you can. HAVE FUN!

@Kareeah: Yeah, probably. They can try to go to the Skyrim thread or UESP and see what they can get from that too. But seriously, I would not want to deprive someone of their divine right to skyrim.

@Gnomes: Oh hey there Gnomes! It'd be great if you could join this one too! If you ever run for president, I will endorse you if you join!

@Adrius: Aw shucks, Adrius, but thanks for offering help anyways. I guess if we need to ask something lore wise we can just come to you.

Cool. Presently I'm considering a female Imperial (I don't think I'm lore savvy enough to manage one of the more exotic races), what kind of names should I consider?

Imperials are easy. Mostly Latin, Greek, Italian, or Spanish sounding names will do. Like with Tiber Septim's name. For a female Imperial, it could be something like Denaria Galerios or something.

But there are some that are french sounding, but I've only encountered a few of and only in Oblivion. They might've been Breton, but they look the same.

Okay, how's this:

Name: Noxa Peregrinus
Race: Imperial (Female)
Age: Young-ish; old enough to be starting out on her own.
Appearance: A little dark for an Imperial but not enough to cause comment, dark hair, emerald green eyes. A little on the short side. Wears thick leather clothing and a warm wool cloak while traveling in Skyrim, she also owns a blacksmith's apron (usually packed away unless she's working). She carries an apocarthy's satchel that has been re-purposed to hold her coin and jewels (if amethysts and garnets are too much in the way of valuables, then she bartered them for safe passage or something, that doesn't matter).
Weaponry: A hammer (actually a blacksmith's hammer not a warhammer) and a dagger she found on a corpse while traveling to Skyrim.
Miscellaneous: A belt of equipment containing files, polishing rags, and other tools one would use for working with gems and metals including a second, smaller hammer and a small pick. Also a pot, a tankard, and enough rations to get her to the next town.

Alright, I guess I'll join...

Name: Yuin-Ta (Yu, for short)
Race: Argonian (male)
Age: Young (Glory Seeker age)
Appearance: Tall even for his race, thin face, broad shoulders, visible spikes going from where he would normally have eyebrows to the base of his neck. Eyes are a deep sapphire, scales are a rather dashing green. He wears a suit of padded armor that covers up to his wrists and the base of his neck, as well as a pair of bracers for his arms. Yu has the hilt of his broad sword over his shoulder. It is both plain and boring.
Weaponry: His claws and teeth () and a basic hand-and a half broad sword.
Misc: He carries random tidbits of leather and the pelt of a wolf that decided to bother him. His backpack where he carries all of his stuff is a basic two-pouch satchel.

If someone doesn't put in a stereotypical bearded Nord hammer dude, I'll put in one as an NPC. Gotta have one.
